GCSE P.E.

Welcome

The exam for GCSE PE (worth 40% of total grade) is broken into 3 parts.
Multiple Choice,
Section A – short answer questions,
Section B – extended answer questions based on pre-release material.

Revision should focus on all of the content covered. Particular attention should be devoted to topics likely to be covered in Section B.

Guidance

Looking at answers from the mark schemes is essential to gauge the amount of detail required for each section.
Devote revision time to all topics covered.
If there are any areas that need covering again, let your teacher know
